To blog that is?
It's tough, when people have things like myspace, facebook, msn, how about work yeah work get's in the way and let's not even forget about things like vacation, travelling and so on and so forth.
Anyway, I have now found sometime, not a lot of time but I have found sometime to sit down and organize my thoughts. Well as organized as they can be.
I recently went on a trip with 32 Sea Cadets to France and Belgium. The purpose of the tour as to see history and visit the War Cemeteries from the First and Second World War as well as participating in the 90th Anniversary Celebration of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.
It is fair to say that this experience was a life altering experience for many of the cadets involved. Whether, or not they realize it now or 5 years down the road...I know what we did made an impact.
As for everything else, I enjoy blogging...I hope those of you have noticed I have switched back to conservative blue, I can't imagine why I ever had orange up their in the first place.
So let me go back to Hyde Park and get on my soap box for a moment.
I had a pretty good discussion with a friend while in France, I know now that I will not stay here forever...my life started in this great province and I know my life will probably end in Manitoba as well...but the time spent between isn't going to be here.
Is it that Manitoba doesn't possess enough growth or opportunity to keep me here...that really isn't the case, is it that the economy is stagnant and job creation is purely directed towards the Civil Service, the answer would be yes...but that isn't the reason either.
So what is the reason you ask?
Well, if going away taught me anything, it's that their is enough opportunity outside of this province all I have to do is go look for it...but rest assured I am here for at least two more years while I go to Creative Communications as Red River...after that who knows.
I am heading to the Spring Dinner on Tuesday the 24th, should prove to be a good time. I didn't make it to the fall dinner this year or the AGM but I am really looking forward to being their and running into a lot of people I haven't seen since the leadership.
Some people have pegged me as the guy who walked away...and you know something you are right I did step away. I walked away from pretty much everything except my friends. I walked away from Metis Politics, Provincial Politics and Federal Politics...however I think I have been away long enough and it's about time I reared my ugly head and started pissing people off again.
Afterall, some of you have even accused me of being a self-promoter...which is hilarity at it's finest.
So look to see me at the Spring Dinner don't worry I won't fork anyone in the eye that night...maybe later but not that night.
Glad to see the party is moving forward in a good direction, I like the new logo and the apparent new energy that is flowing from 23 Kennedy, it's a great feeling to see the party invigorated as we move towards a potential election this spring.
Have a great day!
